Things have progressed nicely for Ruby Casareno, Vice President, Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls (CMC), Allakos Inc. For executives wishing the same for your CMC leadership and organization, there are lessons on why that’s the case. Those lessons also recall for Casareno an earlier experience where progression traversed a rockier road. It all adds up to 6 best practices particular to outsourcing drug development and manufacturing.
Managing clinical supplies is hard. Not hard like string theory — more like organizing a family vacation with your adult siblings and all their children. Clinical supplies management sits at the intersection of multiple disciplines, each with its unique perspectives and priorities. Their collective attention may be difficult to hold for something as seemingly trivial as packaging. However, clinical packaging is critical to the success of a program and a company, and an effective request for proposal (RFP) will guide you to the right packaging partner for your journey to product approval.
Whether to rotate disinfectants has been debated in the pharmaceutical industry for years. If disinfectants are not used properly, microorganisms may remain on surfaces and proliferate in the environment. This article discusses the concept of disinfectant rotation and the current mainstream industry practice regarding it.
Gone are the days when we could count the number of immunology drugs on the market with our two hands. Today, the market is crowded with not only an abundance of originator biologics, but also an increasing supply of biosimilar products
By dispelling the myths associated with biocatalysis, a manufacturer can reap the benefits of this technology, providing a route to greener, safer chemistry that delivers a higher overall yield.
Here we describe a process development methodology that enables design of either a batch or a continuous chromatography step based on the same set of experimental data.
Dedicated Fermentation Technology Replacing Stainless Steel Systems in Bioprocess Markets
This white paper outlines how connectivity and comprehensive automation solution can facilitate technology transfer and scaling from process development to final manufacturing scale.
How Electronic Trial Master Files (eTMFs) Work With Other eClinical Systems To Help You Meet Regulatory Requirements.
Seamless teamwork among INC Research/inVentiv Health, sponsor and sites results in multinational studies with zero audit findings.
Microcarriers are commonly used in bioreactor cultures to provide a large growth surface for anchorage-dependent cells, and are typically provided either untreated or gamma-irradiated and ready for use. The process economy comparison performed in this work was made for the preparation step of Cytodex 1 versus Cytodex 1 Gamma microcarriers. Two scales were included: 100 L pilot and 500 L production scales.
Advances in single-use bioprocess technology have led to the development of the Thermo Scientific HyPerforma Single-Use Fermentor (SUF), the first specifically designed fermentor of its kind.
